The Symbols panel lets you apply multiple objects by painting them onto the page. Symbols used in combination with the symbolism tools offer options that make creating repetitive shapes, such as grass, or stars in the sky, easy and fun. You can also use the Symbols panel as a database to store artwork and map symbols to 3D objects. Symbols can also provide excellent support for SWF and SVG export.
